A light display art installation at Bombay Beach at the Salton Sea.
The Salton Sea is 15 miles wide and 35 miles long. With so much shoreline and interesting places, there is always something wonderful to photograph. By example I happened to find this random model on a pole at an abandoned gas station and store.
Well maybe not so random. Nora from NYC came out and shot with me for the day all around the Salton Sea. Makeup and Hair Styling and Styling by the Estee Lauder featured artist Blanche LeBeau.

On Photo Excursions we always look for great places to eat that are not the usual we see in the year 2021 now. George’s Drive-In in Riverside on our Jurupa Valley Southern California excursion. A family roadside stop since 1974. Huge menu, food serving sizes off the scale and just great. If you are on some kind of diet, just forget it. You need the experience of eating this food!
For those days when you would like to have a soothing afternoon tea with friends while getting your muffler swapped out. On a Photo Excursion in Jurupa Valley, Southern California.
It was at the North Shore near the Yacht Club. I photographed what was left in 2010. Nothing there now at all.
Looking forward to getting back to photographing people, fitness, fashion and more. My buddy Ashley in one of our photoshoots. Here after her appearance at the NPC National Figure Competition in Las Vegas. Makeup and hair styling by Natalie Lyle.
Sometimes I find what we take for granted or just overlook can make for interesting photographs. Burger King in Cabazon California on a Photo Excursion.
The Rubidoux Drive-In, of course in Rubidoux, Southern California. Photographed on a recent Photo Excursion. Drive-ins are nostalgic for some of us.
Southwest has been flying in and out of Palm Springs now. Actually quite a few flights and they sure are colorful. Photographed during a meet up with some of my photographer friends.
I do love photographing beautiful women. I have photographed my buddy Ashley a few times. Waiting and watching something going on here.
Just something you would drive by and ignore. Trash, graffiti on an abandoned billboard, and in the distance a high rise casino resort. As a scene what does it say? From a photo excursion.
Somehow when you see the billboards in their entirety and location, it negates the message. On the frontage road along the 10 Freeway near Cabazon on the way to Palm Springs.
When shooting film, I have learned that it is more economical to photograph with two models at the same time. I will have to remember to do that more often.
I do also like photographing trains. I will have to do that more often. This was in Tucson on a multi-day photo excursion. Fujifilm X-Series camera using the Velvia film emulation.
January 6th has become a historic date for many wrong reasons. This year January 6th 2021 I was at home. January 6th 2017 I was at the World War II Manzanar Internment Camp on a multi-day Death Valley photo excursion. Photographed with a Hasselblad digital camera system.
Actually we do get a lot of military aircraft at Palm Springs. There were a few C-130’s on hand today. I was on the ramp running flights at the Palm Springs Air Museum.
The Cabazon dinosaurs, one freshly pink and the other still in Christmas attire. Photo excursion yesterday from Palm Springs to Fontana California.
The last full Moon of the year 2020, photographed December 29. Known as the “Cold Moon” because it occurs in the Winter of December. The camera was a Fujifilm X-H1 and the XF100-400 lens.
